The African Meets The Black American


The African has been separated from his Black American brothers and sisters since the dawn of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Millions of Africans were forcibly ejected from their native soil, separated from their loved ones and family members, torn from the lives they once knew, and transplanted into a new world. Essentially, the black American has become a new person in a new world with a unique experience.


The event will discuss Black Americans' previous and current perceptions, thoughts, and opinions about Africans and vice versa. This thoughtful conversation will also explore how Black Americans view, see, relate with, perceive, and interact with their African kith and kin they left on the African continent, who are now 'voluntarily' joining them in America in exodus proportions, fleeing the life of grinding poverty, deprivation, hunger, dictatorships, helplessness, and all kinds of diseases.        

All members of the Farmingdale State College campus community are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Light refreshments will be served.
